Putting anyone behind the wheel of a speeding car seems almost asinine if you examine it from a completely clinical standpoint. Not only are you hurtling along the road in a tin can surrounded by unpredictable strangers in their own speeding tin cans, but you aren't just going in a straight line, you're weaving and turning and tempting fate at every moment. So, putting children behind the wheel, making the car much smaller and, therefore, much less sturdy, and letting them speed around a poorly maintained track with other kids can't possibly be legal, right?
In fact, it was legal and encouraged. Welcome to Malibu Grand Prix!
The corporate high-end go-kart raceways were located throughout the Southwest including Houston and gave kids the rides of their lives.
